MILWAUKEE BREWERS radio voice BOB UECKER will be undergoing a second heart surgery next TUESDAY in MILWAUKEE. UECKER, who had heart surgery on APRIL 30th, caught a skin-related staph infection while recovering that may have infected his surgery area.
In a statement released by the BREWERS, UECKER said, "I’m approaching this with the same optimism that I had the first time, and I appreciate all of the kind thoughts and well wishes from BREWERS fans and everyone who has reached out to me. I have the highest confidence in the doctors and staff at FROEDTERT HOSPITAL and I look forward to being ready to go well before Spring Training in ARIZONA."
